Tuesday is Election Day. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Voters will be asked to produce an ID, but they are not required to provide one to cast a ballot.
In Bethlehem, voters will be selecting a new mayor and four members of City Council, though the issue appeared to have been mostly settled after the May primary.
City Councilman Bob Donchez won the Democratic mayoral primary, defeating fellow Councilman J. William Reynolds. While no Republicans ran, an independent candidate, Todd Dietrich, launched a write-in challenge less than two weeks ago.
In the City Council race, Chris Morales—campaigning as “The Hot Dog Guy”—is the sole Republican in a race with four Democrats for four open seats.
Meanwhile, 10 candidates—five Democrats, five Republicans—are
seeking five open spots on Northampton County Council.
The Democrats are:
· Christen Borso, a Bethlehem business owner and member of the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission.
· Ronald Heckman, a former councilman and director of human services from Bethlehem.
· Deborah Hunter, a Nazareth Area School Board member.
· Tom O'Donnell, a former Lower Nazareth supervisor.
· Gerald Seyfried, a former county executive and councilman from Lower Nazareth.
The Republicans are:
· Mat Benol, a former Tea Party Chairman from Palmer Township.
· Peg Ferraro of Bushkill Township, the only incumbent in the race.
· Glenn Geisinger, a businessman from Plainfield Township.
· Hayden Phillips, first time candidate and Hewitt Packard project manager from Lower Nazareth.
· Seth Vaughn, a Bethlehem phyisican's assistant who ran for county council in 2012.
